Effective 3/12/14 all Minogue’s Beverage Centers have upgraded scanners that allow for ID scanning.
The scanners at the registers operate with the same technology as the lottery terminals, which scan IDs and output a birth date. We previously used the lottery terminals to scan IDs, and wanted this same functionality at our registers to prevent the sale of alcohol to minors. The scanner at the register reads the birth date on the ID – as the lottery terminal would – and additionally prevents the cashier from proceeding with an alcohol or tobacco sale if the customer is not of age.
There is no personal information – such as driver’s license or social security numbers – transmitted in the transaction.
